Reading - daily
Can you read fluently without long pauses between words?
Reading your book multiple times can help you with this!
Can you use expression when you see different punctuation -
. ? or !
Spellings - weekly (three related to the sound/spelling focus of the week and three common exception words)
Please remember to complete only one question in your fluency booklet everyday. It is very important that children do not complete their books as they are designed to develop mathematical fluency through repetition and to allow them to continuously revisit a concept. Thank you.
